Born in Grenada, Leslie A. Hutchinson achieved fame and success in London, as a performer who played the piano and sang and whose fans included royalty. Hutch was a protégé of Cole Porter who he met in Paris in the 1920s, and who taught him socially and intellectually, as well as about music, clothes and style. Two of the songs that Porter wrote for Hutch, "Let's Do It" and "Begin The Beguine" are included on this CD, and it was he who showed Hutch exactly how he wanted his songs played and performed. Hutch came to London in 1927 to appear in a West End revue. His fame grew in Britain through radio and personal appearances and he recorded over 600 songs for various British labels between the 1920s and 1954. This CD comprises the very last 78s Hutch made in the 1950s and most are appearing on CD for the first time.
